Fluoride Treatments

What are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride helps to strengthen and protect teeth from decay. If decay occurs, the tooth will need to either be filled or receive a root canal. In extreme cases, a decayed tooth will need to be extracted. Fluoride treatments can be applied to your teeth to keep them strong and healthy.

Why are Fluoride Treatments needed?

Fluoride treatments are ideal for patients of all ages. While most pediatric patients will have these treatments applied, they’re just as beneficial for adults. Some of the reasons you’d need or want fluoride treatments include:

  • You don’t use a fluoride-containing toothpaste
  • You don’t drink fluoridated water
  • You are prone to cavities and tooth decay
  • You already have quite a few fillings in your mouth
  • You are looking to protect your own or your child’s teeth

Who is a good candidate for Fluoride Treatments?

Most patients can benefit from these fluoride treatments. The treatment itself takes seconds in the office. You can request fluoride treatment at virtually any of your other dental visits. It’s not uncommon for us to automatically apply it to your children’s teeth when they come in for their bi-annual checkup visit. We will discuss the benefits of fluoride with you so that you can determine if it’s right for you.

What happens during the Fluoride Treatment process?

The treatment process begins with liquid fluoride being brushed over the teeth. Once this is done, we’ll instruct you to avoid eating or drinking for a short period of time. This allows the liquid fluoride to soak into the teeth and provide the protection you need. Fluoride treatments can be reapplied at each bi-annual checkup visit or more often as needed. They are great for patients of all kinds and can work to help protect the teeth from decay. Your smile will thank you for further protecting it when you make the decision to have these additional fluoride treatments applied.
